Legal Services

BF Berry & Fritzinger

David Berry / Berry & Fritzinger, P.C.

I am an experienced local lawyer dedicated to helping people navigate the legal process, whether it is negotiating provider or other contracts, assisting clients buy/sell practices, negotiating leases, or resolving a variety of business and personal disputes. My firm provides a broad range of services that include estate planning; a significant part of my practice is representing building owners with construction defects and other problems. I am committed to helping the medical community, with deeply held gratitude for the local medical providers who saved my wife’s life.

BENEFIT: A free initial consultation to SCMA members. If retaining me or my firm makes sense, we will discuss how to do so. If a lawyer outside of my firm is a better fit, I will make the referral. My goal is for physicians to leave the consultation feeling that they received excellent support and service. Contact me at 707-800-0550 or
